    After reading the simple explanaiton of an EE day I have decided to try it... It feels like I'm going wrong because of how much I can eat so wanted to check with some of you that this really is OK lol...

    Breakfast: Mullerlight

    Lunch: Lean pork cooked in fry-light, added stir fry veg and noodles with soy sauce.

    Tea: lean ham, chicken and turkey with 42g low fat cheddar (HEb).

    I used 350ml skimmed milk as HEa.

    syns were curly wurly (6.5), sandwich pickle (1.5), 2 square chocolate (2.0) total syns = 10.

    That was yesterdays food diary... is that okay for an EE day??

    It looks fine but I would probably say to have more for breakfast ( I would be starving on just a yoghurt), and try to include some more fruit and veg - in your evening meal and as snacks.

    Fine as far as I can see and as long as the noodles were dry - ambient noodles aren't free. Don't forget to eat lots of superfree food (eg eggs, quorn, fruit, veg & salad) to really get EE going!

    Where's your healthy B? I'dd add 42g weetabix crunchy bran to your muller for breakfast, and you really need to add loads of veg for tea. Plus a baked potato! You're not eating halfway enough! You also need some fruit. Fill up on your free foods! Thats what they're there for!

    The slimming world e-book. It says that cheese is a HEb on green days... and I thought because It's EE I could use healthy extras from either/both original or green so long as I only had one a and one b....

    When I tried to do that on the food diary on the SW website it wouldn't let me do it! I ignored it!

    Judi, if you have saved say, Cheddar as a hexa in your favourites, you also have to put it in as a hexb, then the diary lets you count it. It's very confusing, as you'll see cheddar listed twice in your favourites and there's no indication which is the "a" and which the "b". Hope this makes sense!

    Cheese is most certainly a HEX A and B choice on EE. You can have any of the A's and B's from the red and green plans. They are not all listed in the EE booklet but they've kept it short and you can refer to the red and green book for the other A's and B's.

    As for the food diary........ looks good, but def more for brekkie and have some superfree foods with your tea to balance the meal out. It's not essential, but for good losses try to have a third superfree with each of your EE meals.

    I've just checked up on the cheese thing.....

    On the SW website/Eat and slim page, if you go to latest healthy extras under B choices and select EE it lists:

    Bread
    Cereal bars
    Cereals and crispbreads
    Cheese
    Dried, Canned and Cooked fruit
    Hi Fi bars
    Nuts and Seeds
    Oil
    Soups

    There you go!!

    Hi,
    See above from my previous post!
    They've kept the book short as you have your red/green book too and they didn't want to reproduce the whole book in the EE book.
    Rest assured, you can have ANY of the A's and B's from red and green, the EE booklet just lists some examples.

    Looks ok, add more fruit and veg though and make sure you drink loads too, this is very important for flushing stuff through.
